About this course

Software engineering is the systematic approach to the development, operation, maintenance and retirement of software; the controlling element of computer-based systems. As society becomes even more dependent on computers, one of the biggest challenges is the creation of new software necessary to make computers useful. Software engineering deals with the challenges associated with large-scale, high quality software: size and complexity, cooperation between developers, clients and users, and evolution of software over time to maintain its value. Software engineers use principles of computer science, engineering, design, management, psychology, sociology and other disciplines to design and manage large software systems. Team and individual projects are a focus of this plan, an approach valued by employers.

Employment opportunities:

Software engineers work in large multi-national companies, state and federal government departments and agencies, and in many small, specialised and emerging companies. Career opportunities for software engineers are excellent and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Australian graduates are well accepted internationally and many graduates work overseas to expand their expertise.
